2. Eddie Molino Jr
I Googled his name and the memorial came up. I dearly would like to get in touch with his Mother, I know she is Arapaho from Fallon. I was Eddie's housemate in Flight school. I was his best man at his marriage to Nancy Ray at Ft Rucker, Ala. I escorted him back from Vietman to be buried in Alabama. The family always wanted to move him back home. If that is still her wish, I want very much want to help make that wish come true. I remember her husband saying his spirit would not be free until he was home. Now is the time. I left some things of his at the Wall. I have a couple more. I've led my life 'the Indian way' as he told me. You may Google my name and research to see exactly where he died, what helicopter he was flying. Co-pilot's family lives in San Diego area.Thanks, Blueghost12
